Yailin La Más Viral, the 21-year-old Dominican singer and girlfriend of rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine, has received her first nomination for the prestigious Soberano Awards 2024 in the Dominican Republic.
The Soberano Awards, presented annually by the Asociación de Cronistas de Arte (Acroarte), recognize the best in Dominican art and entertainment. The awards show will take place on March 12th at the National Theater in Santo Domingo.
Yailin is nominated in the Collaboration of the Year category for her bachata song “Sólo Tú y Yo,” a duet with singer Shadow Blow. She is competing against major Dominican artists such as Milly Quezada, Olga Tañón, and Elvis Crespo.
Yailin expressed excitement over her nomination, writing on Instagram: “Oh what a thrill my God, thank you for everything. Let’s go for that award.”
About “Sólo Tú y Yo”
The song was released in May 2023 and has over 49 million YouTube views. It marked a musical departure from Yailin’s previous trap and reggaeton songs with explicit lyrics. Filmed in Samaná and Santo Domingo, “Sólo Tú y Yo” was her first release after becoming a mother.
With her Soberano Awards nomination and crossover bachata hit, Yailin continues to evolve as an artist since debuting as a social media personality. As she attends her first major Dominican awards show, Yailin solidifies her position among the country’s top musical acts.
